Gnocchi with Quick Romesco Sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Heat ¼ cup of oil in an ovenproof skillet over a medium heat
  2. Add gnocchi. Cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until golden
  3. Meanwhile, drain capsicums and add to food processor along with extra 2 tablespoons of olive oil, almonds, garlic, vinegar, sugar and basil. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add ¾ cup water to loosen
  4. Add the sauce to pan with gnocchi and stir until coated. Add extra water to gnocchi in pan if it has absorbed the liquid and you prefer a thinner sauce
  5. Combine breadcrumbs with cheese. Sprinkle on top
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden
  7. Serve immediately sprinkled with basil leaves accompanied with rocket, apple and parmesan salad
Tips & Hints:
  • Find gnocchi with the fresh pasta section in the refrigerated section of major supermarkets
  • You can use shelf-life gnocchi as well. You may need to add extra water if gnocchi absorbs water too quickly
  • You will need 170g drained capsicum for the sauce which is the amount of a 260g jar. Use any roasted or char-grilled red peppers in jars, whole, in pieces or strips
  • You can use panko breadcrumbs instead of fresh
